February 2nd is Imbolic or Groundhog Day if you prefer.  It’s the half way point of winter.  It’s a perfect time to start thinking about spring whether it’s going to be early or another full six weeks of wintery weather.

For Real Toads, the Sunday Mini Challenge is to write a Cinquain.  It’s a 5-line poem with a syllable count of 2, 4, 6, 8, 2.  It’s often about nature, uses imagery and has a twist at the end.  It also needs a strong title.

Winter’s blanket

Covers flowers and rock

Deep beneath earth’s deathly white shroud

Spring blooms

For Haiku Heights, the theme this week is Pride.

winter sun behind clouds

foolish winter’s pride

sunshine chases cold away

promise of spring near
